Colour 2006

Colour 2006.  Written and directed by Naz Knight and DJ Silk

 

Colour is an ensemble play about the lives of nine people living in multi-cultural Britain.   Blending the hip hop sounds of DJ Silky G, the  poetry of Nzinga Knight and the rare talents of African, Caribbean, English, Irish, Eastern European, Turkish and     Vietnamese performers. Colour paints a portrait of urban life as a person of colour in Britain.

 

Colour twists and twirls its way through the lives of Nine slam performers on Open Mic Night. Displaying slam pieces that are powered by anger and       frustration the engines that drive creativity, but rage is not the only emotion on display.   No less      powerful than the fiery poetry slams about race and gender, off stage/in the bar, the performers         exchange stories of their own.
